Paul Kellogg is a verteran broadcaster working at CFRB and CKEY in Toronto, WCBS News in New York and WELI in New Haven, CT. When he opened the Victory Cafe in Toronto some years ago, the concept (in addition to providing comfort food for patrons) was to have a place for the arts and music community to gather; so the second floor was used for things like: Jazz with Jeff Healey, the North by Northeast Music Festival, a Fringe Festival venue, weekly poetry readings, book launchings and music jam sessions.
Paul now lives in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia where Bluenose Opera House is produced. He is a volunteer and supporter of many local organizations such as Second Story Women's Centre, Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, Lunenburg Heritage Society, Musique Royale, Boxwood Festival, Lunenburg Waterfront Association and Paint Sea on Site. His program is wonderful! Listen Sunday at 9:00am AST 9:30am NT.

Robert Carnell just passed the 6th Anniversary of hosting Saltwater Music. He’s an example of why we need to collectively rethink what is “local.” The Newfoundland native produces the program in Kingston, Ontario where it is broadcast weekly. During those years, Robert has provided enormous support for East Coast Musicians attempts to gain exposure outside of Atlantic Canada, and Ontario is an important and lucrative market for many.
